STA-7 Low Range S Type Tension & Compression Load Cell



  • Ranges 1 to 50kg
  • High Accuracy
  • Aluminium Alloy
  • Weighs only 300g
  • Integral Overload Stops on 1, 2, 5kg versions

The STA-7 series load cell is ideal for measuring both tensile and compressive forces. The standard metric threads at each end of the load cell are designed to accept standard spherical seating rod-end bearings.

The STA-7 is suitable for many applications where a tension and compression load cell is required, for high accuracy measurements. Applications such as material test machines, weighing, general force measurement etc.

Tension and compression overload stops are supplied as standard on all ranges up to 5kg. This feature helps to protect the load cell against accidental damage up to 500% of the load cell range.

The STA-7 series can be supplied on it’s own or combined with our extensive range of instrumentation to provide a complete load monitoring system.
